Using genelecs in USA -voltage /currency question

Youngling Posts: 2 Join Date: 9/10/13 Recent Posts
Hello,
i have a set of 6010A speakers that i want to take with me to the USA. If i want to use them there, what transformer /converter should i get? I've read some stuff online but i can't seem to figure out if i should get a transformer or a converter, or a switching converter etc. i would really like to avoid doing something wrong with that :)
The label on the speaker says 50/60Hz and 230 Volt.
Could somebody advise me on this ? Much appreciated!

thanks,

Sanne

Hi Sanne,

You will need a step-up transformer (input voltage ~110V, output ~230V) with a power rating of at least 200 VA.
